Lock boxes for cameras is more for my peace of mind, have never lost one...and don't want too either. Use to build tree stands out of wood, last 3-to-5 years then you had to rebuild because the wood deteriorated. Replaced all of them with homemade steel units, swivel seats, expanded metal floors let snow and rain pass through. Ladders and stands are permanently lagged into the tree. Have ten stands on the property, most have been up for over 25 years. After a couple years, the rust blends right in with the tree bark color.
